[BTSV] Contest Entry: Man on Fire (literally)

I have to give some love to fellow Canadian photographer Benjamin Von Wong, a prolific and dedicated shooter. His BTS video shows something you don't often get to see. Disappointment and frustration... (Oh ya and a man getting set the fuck on fire!)

It's a common occurrence for good creatives to come up with an idea in their heads only to be really hard on themselves when the final image doesn't quite live up to their expectations. Knowing that being 100% happy with your work means you aren't growing makes Benjamin's dissatisfaction the mark of a true artist. Cause let's be honest, the shoot and the finals were pretty cool. Well done Benjamin. And if you win, you better split your loot with Felix... aaaannd maybe the dude who put him out too. :)

December 31st is the last day for contest entries. Do it! Do it now!

Hi Ben, as usual, you came up with great results.  The end photos were superb!  I have always been fond of this shooting location and despite your unmet expectations, you totally rocked the shoot.  Happy New Year to you too! :)

You mean parking of the parc de la cité du havre near Habitat 67.
